Disgruntled Employee. by greytrousers Disgruntled Employee. by greytrousers
Eh. I was debating whether to put this in my scraps since it isn't exactly finished. Well, by my standards it's finished; although half my face has disintegrated. I don't really know why I decided to put it in here, but voila. I might add onto it sometime, either digitally or traditionally. Anyway... another attempt at a self-portrait.

(I wanted to draw someone other than me but the only other person around was my roomie, Rachel, but she was asleep and that would be slightly creepy to draw my roommate asleep. Or at least she might have found that creepy. Uh.)

white latex + acrylic paint + pencil + pen

I don't think things are ever really finished, they're just abandoned.
And I think you've stopped in a good place, I like the simplicity of it.
Striking and original work, well done!

i like it! i think its interesting that you left it unfinished. alot of artists, like the sculptor, Rodin, left his work unfinished... i think it's cool. i love it. anyhoo, the colors, or lack thereof, work with it.

:wow: Thank you!

I knew who Rodin was, especially famous for The Thinker, I think, but just to refresh my memory, I looked online about him and came up with this phrase in relation to his works:
"When we say that his kind of realism was not seamless, we mean it: his sculptures often exposed the joint lines of the piece molds in which they were cast, as well as the "unfinished" marks of modeling and editing. Fragmentation and repetition functioned in the same way, as instances of the sculptor's processes made evident in his product."

Just thought I'd mention that because it got me inspired, or at least excited to do something in that manner, although only 2-D :x Hah, hmm...Thanks again! That probably made no sense.

I hate the word "finished." Half the time "finished" works arn't nearly as interesting as the way they looked in their sketch stage. (I have this problem all the time!) There is something to be said about not overworking things. I think that the sketchy, quick-thinking quality of this image is exactly what make it so good!

Yes, I hate the word "finished" as well, mostly because nothing I really do, especially in relation to uh...academics...ever gets finished. Like you said, yes, things just stop at interesting places :) And thankyou! :D
